What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

A Nice, Unconventional Holiday Card
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.)
Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere.
There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card.
Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card.
Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."

"I thought I had ordered my Christmas cards in plenty of time to get them and send them out before the Holiday Season. I was told they would arrive by Dec. 17th. When they still had not arrived on Dec. 20th and I saw they were still in production, I emailed the customer service dept. of Shutterfly. They were very helpful. Sped up my card production and had them shipped priority. Then came the glitch with Fed Ex. The cards were in MN the next day but didn't arrive at our house for four days. It was disappointing that I wasn't able to send my Holiday greeting cards before Christmas, but I was so pleased with the quality and Shutterfly's persistence to help me out and make me happy that it didn't matter. So our family and friends received our Christmas cards on the 5th day of Christmas. I'm sure they were able to spend more time looking at the beautiful quality of the card and enjoy it more than right before Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Shutterfly. Next year I will get them to you earlier."

Quick and easy!
"Once I was able to sit down during the holidays and actually put my time into creating our holiday cards, it was quick and easy. I had plenty of room to add all the pictures I wanted plus say what I wanted to say. This Christmas card was just perfect for a family of four kids and parents. I was glad I purchased the group-on that gave me 30 cards for $20.00 plus shipping. That was an early Christmas gift for me!"

Joyful Christmas Card
"Turned out great. Was easy to do. I really enjoyed doing it."

"Everything is just fine except the size/location of your logo. For a card where I'd like to write a few personal notes, your logo takes up valuable center space and is larger than the message written above it. Would like to see the logo smaller and in a bottom corner."
Ornament Christmas Cards
Many families and individuals enjoy getting Christmas cards each year. Christmas cards can help people stay in touch by updating loved ones on the past year’s events. They can also be a great way for a family to show how much their children have grown over the past year or to celebrate a new child. Displaying Christmas cards around the home is often part of getting into the holiday spirit each December.
Have Fun with Ornament Christmas Cards
Just like Christmas cards, exchanging ornaments is often a fun yearly tradition. Recipients use these ornaments to welcome new joys when decorating their Christmas tree. Recipients especially love ornaments that have been selected with care, as they’ll appreciate the gift’s personal touch.
With ornament Christmas cards, you can combine the yearly tradition of sending out cards and that of exchanging ornaments. After the holidays are over, it can be difficult to know what to do with a Christmas card. After all, you won’t want to display them the next year, as they’ll be replaced by newer, more recent cards. But ornament cards can be kept in a special place throughout the year and then brought back out when the holidays roll around again. In fact, if you get your loved one an ornament Christmas card each year, he or she can enjoy watching your family grow. Ornament cards on Shutterfly have text or images on both sides of the ornament, so they make for a great visual on the Christmas tree no matter which way they’re facing. The cards can include a personal message on the back, which lets the recipient learn more about the family and provides nostalgia to look back on once the holidays are over.
Other great personalized ornament options include cubed ornaments, with a picture on each side, and pewter ornaments. Pewter ornaments are made with sturdy polished pewter and can withstand wear and tear. Any of these ornament options will help you say “season’s greetings” in a way that is easy and fun to display.
